Invest In A Mobile App And See Your Company Grow
Released on: November 11, 2011, 6:26 pm
With recent research conducted by Acquity Group showing that
one in four retailers now have a mobile app, it seems that businesses
are keen to reach a new mobile audience.
There are many benefits to be reaped by companies with mobile apps, mainly due to
the fact that almost everyone owns a mobile phone these days. With companies
increasingly using mobile apps and processes in their everyday working lives, time
is saved whilst performance is improved too. Other benefits include increased
efficiency in terms of communication; the ability to download the same everyday
applications that are on desktop PC’s; constant internet access; and quick
completion of tasks.
Mobile phones have made it possible to talk, text, email, watch television, watch
films, and listen to music, no matter where in the world we are. Through businesses
investing in mobile apps, work can therefore be conducted wherever we are, with
there being no need to be in the office to carry out a simple task, such as reading
Today we are hearing of more and more businesses that have developed apps. Giving
employees the opportunity to access any of their work regardless of where they are,
companies are therefore increasing their employees’ productivity as a result.
With some companies developing a mobile app, or in some cases paying for a mobile
app to be developed, they are most commonly either an app of the actual business, or
an app that will help the business to grow and be successful. As a great way to
promote a company, mobile apps will only get better, as in months to come it may be
possible for additional services to be sold through them.
A company that’s recently invested in a mobile app is the financial services firm
Prudential. After launching new mobile tools in a bid to make it simpler for clients
and business partners to access the company’s products and services, Prudential is
definitely tapping into the previously unknown world of mobile apps. Not only that
but Prudential Retirement, part of the Prudential Financial group, has unveiled a
new website optimised for mobiles, which will allow account access to 2.5 million of
its retirement plan participants whilst they're on the move. In addition to this,
the company has also invested in a retirement income calculator app for smartphones,
which has been designed to allow users to calculate their estimated monthly
retirement income, as well as their estimated monthly retirement income need.
The fact that mobile app development is becoming popular all over the world makes it
easy for mobile app freelancers to secure work. Not only is app development a task that requires the knowledge of someone highly skilled within that particular area of development, but itís also a task thatís costly and therefore needs to be completed correctly first time around. The opportunity for a mobile app developer to pick up work is great for those working in the freelance industry;
with many freelancers often signed up to various different outsourcing websites in
order to secure such work, as well as to ensure they’re contacted by those who want
to make use of their skills.

people signed up to it, from freelance web designers to freelancer programmers. As
